Not wanting to lose the connection people began posting more frequently on the site and membership grew quickly—recent tally on the site an impressive 1,230.

John Herman Loret (Nov. 8, 1928–Aug. 12, 2011) lived a life of adventure, scientific exploration, and continuous curiosity. Throughout his life he loved learning and making it exciting for his innumerable students.
His love of science began early. He falsified his birth date in order to enlist in the Coast Guard where he served for three years, ending in 1949.
